Special Session hosted at the European Parliament
Our World is threatened by multiple mutations resulting in terrorist attacks, directly linked to radicalisation and extremist developments.
Women are major victims of persecutions and acts of terrorist violence. However, some Women are sometimes associated to this threat after a process that our society seems unable to prevent.
On the occasion of its Homeland and Global Security Forum, held in Brussels (Belgium), on October 19 to 21, 2016, the Crans Montana Forum organised, a Special day of exchanges and reflexion, under the aegis of the African Women’s Forum, whose Honorary Committee is chaired by Mrs. Irina Bokova, General Director of UNESCO.
Women Heads of State and Government, Ministers, Ambassadors, Parliamentarians, Businesswomen, Activists, Heads of Organisations coming from all over the World were invited to address the role of Women in the fight against radicalisation and terrorism.
This exceptional event symbolically took place in the premises of the European Parliament on October 19.
